Episode Description

Behind the Sammy Blindell BRAND is an incredible woman who has faced challenges since her tender youth. Sammy's DEFINING MOMENTS will have you smiling, tearing up, and STANDING UP for courage and power. Sammy will be joining us from her home in France but we'll be talking about our exciting CHANGEMAKER adventures here in San Diego, CA and Orlando, FL. Don't miss Sammy's tips and tricks for branding yourself and your business. Learn how to go from zero visibility to hero credibility and retain your human side in the process

Defining Moments

Defining Moments

Thursday at 10 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Women's Channel

Many of us have something, something we’re hiding, something we’re ashamed of, something that through no fault of our own or through our own making, something that we keep hidden and that, in turn, keeps us hidden, from each other and the world. Defining Moments will show you how to STAND UP in your power and no longer experience the terrible feeling of being a victim of fraud or betrayal. Good people go through terrible situations, wise people know when and how to let it go. Everything that happens to us helps us grow. While it may be hard to see it right away, the most important thing to do is to change your perception about your circumstances! Debby is dedicated to encouraging you to remove the mask of embarrassment and shame and to putting an end to victimization. Debby will help you STAND UP and become the victor not the victim. You will learn how to acknowledge what happened and forgive yourself first and then move on with power.

Ashlee Harmon Birk

Several years ago, just two months after the birth of my fifth child, my husband was murdered by the husband of a secret mistress. To say I was broken-hearted would be an understatement. I was humiliated, scared, and broken to my core. For two years I faked life. I lived half alive. Then one day, not long after the month long murder trial that didn't bring the healing I had waited for . . . I took a breath. I looked around and realized that I had become a victim. I began to plead with God to set me free. Many months later a blog was born. "The Moments We Stand". Each post became an escape of the hidden pain. Each story remembered a blessing of grace to a broken heart. As I wrote my story I remembered it differently. Those times I felt alone all the sudden I could see grace...and knew that God was there.
Author of two books. The Moments We Stand: Silence Breaks, and The Moments We Stand: Out of the Shadows and founder of A Reason to Stand, a healing conference for survivors of trauma. Guest Ashlee Harmon Birk

Sean Sullivan

Hi my name is Sean Sullivan,
I have Autism, and I am very proud of this fact!
I think of my Autism as a gift and super power because I know what it feels like to be rewarded for hard work much more than average and normal people.
My Autism has helped me understand others feelings. For example since I have a disability, I know what the pain of being bullied is, for the most part people who have disabilities are treated by others like freaks, and for immature, belligerent, and oppressive reasons such as feeling superior, and entertainment.
I love public speaking and it’s something that I want to do more. Guest Sean Sullivan
